Well, I finished my first sock last night, and I can’t believe that it actually looks like a sock! And it fits!!! I am so proud of it that I actually brought it to work today (imagine walking through a school with one sock in hand :teehee:).
I used the first pattern from the SKS book along with a printed copy of Silver’s tutorial (thank goodness for those wonderful photos!!!).
I have to say that making socks is [color=red]MAGICAL[/color]!!!
Turning the heel is the COOLEST thing!! (Picking up stitches is not.)
I surprised myself by completing the kitchener stitch with ease. The toe looks amazing!
Since I have some mistakes, I’m going to wait to post a picture until I get the mate completed. I’m going to put the mate (which should have fewer mistakes) in front of the first. :teehee:
Thanks to the wonderful gals in the chatroom on Friday night for helping me get my foot pattern straight (hence where the mistakes lie).
Just wanted to share!!!
